With a place in the Final up for grabs, both sides will be going all out to assure themselves of victory. And it’s sure to be an epic contest, if they can replicate their Group Stage clash at The SCG.
Meeting in Round Five, the two sides served up a corker that saw the scores level after both innings – forcing the result to be settled by a rare Super Over. The Sixers capitulated in their six balls, allowing Adam Voges to snatch the win with a boundary from the Scorchers’ first delivery.
And Voges believes the Semi-final will throw up another intense Big Bash battle between the two sides.
He told Perth Scorchers’ website: “We’ve had some great tussles against the Sixers and we’ve won our past two games over there.
“To get up in the super over last time was really exciting. They are a very good outfit and we’re going to have to play very well.
“Hopefully, Jason Behrendorff can get the ball swinging again and rip through the top order like he did last time.”
